Florida v. J.L. 3-minute mini-oral argument
This evening in Moot Court, we did practice oral arguments on the basic facts of Florida v. J.L., 529 U.S. 266 (2000). We had about 15 minutes to prepare for a 3-minute mini-oral argument. I'm arguing for J.L. (that his Fourth Amendment rights were violated) as if the Supreme Court hadn't decided the case already. The other students are supposed to interrupt and ask questions. This isn't a particularly good argument for me, but here it is nonetheless.
